When the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Portland International Raceway in June it will do so with Jordan Taylor driving the No. 10 Chevrolet.
Kaulig Racing announced on Wednesday that the 32-year-old Taylor would drive their “All-Star car” in his first Xfinity Series start.
“I am really pumped to make my first Xfinity series start with Kaulig Racing, a team that has shown it can dominate at road courses,” said Taylor. “I’ve been fortunate in my racing career to compete at so many different tracks, and I’m looking forward to checking Portland off my list.”
Taylor is well versed in road course racing as he currently competes in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Earlier this year he made a Cup Series start in place of an injured Chase Elliott at Circuit of the Americas.
“Matt Kaulig and I are super excited to have Jordan [Taylor] in the No. 10 car for Portland”, said team president, Chris Rice. “Adding another driver with this much road-course expertise will be a lot of fun. Jordan impressed a lot of people in his first NASCAR start at COTA, and I can’t wait to see what he will do in his first Xfinity Series start.”
The road course race at Portland takes place on June 3.
